I just installed a asus drw1612 dvd burner with the jumper in the default positio (couldnt find any labels,markings or info about the jumpers).
When trying to acess the drive my computer freezes and have to use task manger to get out of it.
I checked the event viewer and was told that "device cdrom0 had a bad block", and "driver detected a controller error on device cdrom0"
I checked the device manager and saw no problems there
Another forum suggested that I check the jumper setting.
Problem is the web site as no info about jumper settings, nothing in the manual (what a joke) and no markings on the case.
Any ideas of where to find the info?

Hi i82much, welcome to BC. :thumbsup:
Most drives ship with the jumper in the cs (cable select) position.
Looking at the back of the drive, from right to left, 1 is usually master, 2 is usually slave and 3 is usually cable select. Don't worry about 4 or 5 if applicable.
Is this drive on it's own cable or sharing with another drive?.
Is it identified in the bios correctly and set accordingly?

If you are not sure, every one of the last several hundred drives that I have installed have the drive setting chart stamped in the metal on the drive
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently
